    This has been such a great build thread...lots of cool pictures and information coming not only out of it but good input from various members.

    Just for a point of reference, every 208 that I've seen, including mine, had a factory custom-built trailer from ROADRUNNER, tandem axle and with the bunks built for the hull for a perfect fit.
    Table Rock Lake is my home away from home, and big block power rules.

    It looks great. I would have a hard time waiting that long to use the boat.

    Paging catman...paging catman...

    I hope this project got the engine it deserves and is out playing on the water somewhere...

    The early build pictures in this thread have been invaluable in helping me with my project to install Aero bolsters. One thing that it showed me was there is ZERO clearance/room on the far outboard sides of the front seat area to fabricate a seat mount...the flooring is literally on top of the hull at that point...only the thickness of the floor between the hull. So no way to mount there...but I see some options with the fuel tank cover and the longitudinal and cross stringers.

    I posted pictures of the bolster frames in the 'one step closer to Aero bolsters' thread. These frames mount directly to the floor. I also scored a set of frames with seats that have the outboard side mounts, so I now have some options (thanks again, Kefurr!)
